Young Thug and Lil Wayne’s past feud is water under the bridge, and now Thugger is challenging his former rival to a Verzuz battle.
While chatting with hosts Gillie Da King and Wallo267 on their “Million Dollaz Worth of Game” podcast, the rapper revealed that Weezy is his dream opponent for Timbaland and Swizz Beatz’s popular streaming series, as they are comparable in cultural influence. “It would probably have to be like [Lil Wayne],” he shared. “Because you got to think—we got to talk about influence. We got to talk about everything. We got to talk about everything. It’s not just about no rap.”
“You got to understand, as rapper, as hip-hop artists, you can only go so far,” he added. “I always just focused on the next level.”
“Jay-Z don’t got 30 songs like that”

The duo’s beef stems back to when they first met. “The first day he didn’t dap me up,” Thug shared of their first encounter. “Tried me. Now my feet hurt and I’ma real stepper. Left the pimpin’ hanging. He prolly had them chrome hearts on.”
“I’m like, ‘Hey listen bruh, I’m never touching your hand again. Just off of that. I’m a player, I’m a real player and I don’t give no f—. Nothing about me is a groupie, no nothing! You inspired me,” he continued.
